Hey everyone,

Like most of you I am eagerly awaiting the release of AC: NL. There is a topic I wanted to bring up with you to see what the interest would be like; no-nonsense trading.

Basically, I like to play AC alone (I hope I am not the only one who feels this way). I honestly like to play all games alone. Its just how I like to play. If others feel this way, here is what I mean by no-nonsense trading:

I start up AC and have apples as my home fruit. I know that ACPlayer25 has pears as his/her town fruit. I invite that person over, we trade the respective fruits, and disconnect. No pretense of playing the mini games or fishing or touring the town to meet the villagers. In. Out. Done.

I do NOT mean to come off as rude at all. Social games don't interest me. I had XBox Live and never used it. MMOs were never of any interest to me. In AC, I just want the fruit I don't have. Or the missing Modern End Table that I need.

What are your thoughts on this?

I'm all for that, as long as it's mentioned up front you know?

I have times where I don't open my gates a lot just for free play and visitors. Games are used as an escape for me, especially when I'm feeling anti-social, so my gates wont open. But if I had something even during that time that somebody wanted and visa versa a no-nonsense trade would be wonderful!

But yeah, some way to tell a no-nonsense via a sure.. come over we'll trade and hang out.. needs to be made to distinguish I think. More cause, I hate not knowing what is espected out of me.. and I feel like it would be like a phone call when both people aren't huge phone fans... and don't know if the other person is done with the conversation or not. Awkward silence begins. Lol

I agree - sometimes I like to play alone - I do this most often but at times when I feel like it I like to have a list of trustworthy friends to get together and hang out and go to the island for awhile.

I believe I will be using some "no nonsense trading" to get some particular items I am looking for

I think this is great as long as you set it up ahead of time and make your intentions known.

I'm not into the chit-chat part of it either. I prefer to just have a look around other towns, exchange presents, etc., but not feel obligated to chat. I don't mind people visiting my town and I plan on having my gates open a fair bit, even if my DS is in sleep mode (it should work shouldn't it? It does in WW, and your character just looks like they are sleeping) but I think it's quite rare that I will be very interactive (ie. constant chatter).

It's a bit awkward as mostly people who visit will be strangers.....and what do you say to total strangers?

Wow! I'm honestly pleasantly surprised that there are others who feel the same way. I thought I was just nuts when I see all the threads here or on Reddit saying "We can play together all the time!"

Well, advanced notice seems fair obviously. I really wanted to test the water to see how this would be received.

Haha I am very Pro No-nonsense trading, mainly because I can be socially awkward and shy at times. A great way to let people know your intentions of just trading could be this thread or just a PT with the person you are trading with, when all is done you can just disconnect from the game and lock the PT.

I haven't looked too much into New Leaf, but you may find the "Dream Suite" thing interesting as well. It lets you get a look into other people's towns without having to talk to them!
This is something I'm really interested in doing (not to sound like a creeper or anything), but I would enjoy showing off my town and seeing other people's towns to get room ideas; without all the small talk.

So yea, if anyone wants to do some No-nonsense trading or exchange FC for the Dream Suite, send me a FCR.

I'm glad there are others too! I mean, I'm glad I have people on my friends list now and all. Gives me time to get a feel for them through swapnotes and all and when I feel like being social I have some cool people on there, but it's nice to know I"m not the only one that would rather play by myself a lot of the times either.

I do love the Dream Suite for that very reason! I love that I can go visit towns and people can come visit me.. and I wont feel obligated to talk or follow and I can just explore... or.. I wont feel like I have to do guided tours, etc. lol

I'm glad I'm not the only one who prefers to keep the wi-fi down to a minimum. I have 2 ppl that I've developed a rapport with that I don't mind hanging out with.
What irritates me is when someone pops in and just stands there. Then you hear them [I have wi-speak] talking to someone in the room w/them, playing another game on their DS or messing around on their computer.
If I visit another town, I keep it cordial. I visit the townies, check for new patterns and Nook's. I ask b4 I copy or shop. And I NEVER shake trees or take anything lying around.

I totally respect you for starting this topic and making a name for it: "no-nonsense trading" is a perfect way to put it!  Yes and I agree that advance notice of a no-nonsense trade is also fair.  I do enjoy playing alone, especially with having 2 little ones and working full-time, I have limited time to play to begin with and now, if I'm lucky, I usually get to play after 9:00 pm when everyone is in bed.  I would respect and be up for a "no-nonsense trade" anytime I'm also looking forward to the Dream Suite to nosey around other people's towns on my own time.

With that said, I am a bit curious to play the island games in New Leaf especially if you get special prizes for playing.

I'm all for this! I only opened my gates in WW/CF for trades. I even made drop off and pick up boxes for fast, easy trading (right next to the gate).

For no-nonsense traders I will make exceptions to my no friends under 30 rule! Feel free to send me a friend request. Just put something like NL no-nonsense in the request note

That 30+ thing again! jk. Lol Last night I was talking to my boyfriend after seeing a couple of the 30+ and older things, and I'm like "That describes me perfectly! Why am I at the awkward not 20 yet not 30 stage!" (I'll be 27 in July. haha)

But yeah, I'm the same way as slrandall said. If I'm visiting I'm visiting. It takes a lot for me to even be like "Oh hey... their gates are opened, lets go visit." for me to not explore and talk to the townies and all. I never do anything without permission though as far as tree shaking, digging and buying goes. And want the same from visitors. It's not too much to ask, I would think.

But yeah, no-nonsense trade is the perfect way to put it!

I feel almost the same, the exception being the island minigames, since i guess it'll be a nice way to spend even more time playing the game after the usual daily routine if some friends are up for it.

I like to play at my own pace, alone in my town, but chatting while doing so it's 100% fine with me.

I also like the idea of no-nonsense trading. When NL comes out, you should make a thread just for that purpose.

I do enjoy playing with others sometimes, but not every person who I trade with. I only want to play with adults, but kids may have some good trades as they most likely have more time to play.

The Dream Suite thing sounds really cool.

MiMoSeTH, I'm really interested in the Island Games! And they seem like they would be more fun with other players. That would be the area I would probably be interested in wifi'ing the most. But it's set plans really, so that helps more.

Once you visit someone's town - you can then send mail to each other - right?

Seem's like it worked like that in CF - it's been a long time since I played and my memory is iffy on it.

Oh man!  You are so spot on.  My husband jokes about how anti-social I can be at times.  Sometimes I am just really focused on what I need/want to do and as a stay at home mom it feels like I work 24/7 365 so sometimes I just need my alone time. I've played MMOs where I only grouped with him and when he stopped playing I would tackle crazy stuff by myself.  
That being said since my husband is better at this random group stuff I have had experiences in groups accomplishing things I wouldn't have been able and I have some fond memories of those experiences so I have resolved to try to branch out more.
I definitely think this has some promise especially since in the grownup gamer forum the posters are more likely to have responsibilities that limit their gaming time or long rounds of gaming.  There will be lots of times when I can only play for a short time but I still want X and don't want to wait days, weeks or months to get it.  heck, in my City Folk town I am still missing a piece of my favorite series of furniture.  (OK I did restart my town but that was done over a year ago...)
Please send me a FCR (referencing no nonsense trading post) when your info is added to your profile and hoping we have different fruit in our town and I'll be happy to drop off some fruit if our play times sync up.


CBAC
Great point!  If thou can send letters to those on your friend list you could send requests that way too (in case someone isn't logging onto ACC on a regular basis.

Edited because I didn't notice that you don't have info set up for me to do FCR right now

I'm not sure about the letters. I've heard different stories. I feel as if I just need to wait to see if I can send mail after visiting. It would be sad if they took out that feature though. I enjoyed sending letters to friends.

I'm glad to see all the support! I'll update my profile later with my friend code info and you all can add me if you would like. I still actively play CF so if you are missing any furniture or anything, I can check my catalogue and we can no-nonsense trade (NNT?) if you'd like.

Also, I'm sure this thread will die down before New Leaf comes out, so I'll be sure to make a new one so we can all trade some fruit with people of common interest. If someone beats me to it, no problem!

I agree with comments here. I too like to visit towns, leave gifts etc, but am not really into mega socialising or team games stuff. I would be very happy to join a no nonsense trading group where we can visit for swapping goods. Also, you are welcome to come over to visit so long as I dont have to entertain you! Just come and fish, and hunt, and chat to neighbours, and pick fruit....

Anyone interested please fcr me ready for launch date ( 14th for me)

Ioba and Chabob: I declined your FCR not to be nasty but because I have stinky DSL 6.0 right now. I haven't wi-fi'd in forever because I keep getting DC'd.
Hoping to upgrade later in summer. Just can't afford it right now.
Thanks for asking though.

Thanks for the ACCF trade offer but I am worried about obsessively trying to maintain two towns so I am purposefully ignoring my City Folk town right now.  So, I must resist temptation and stay out.  I'm sure I'll eventually pop back in.  I've always had moments where I'll grow nostalgic for an older version (especially ACGC with its sweet games like Excite bike!!!) but I am to close to the release so I must restrain myself.

I contacted Lindsey of LinandKo through their website and she just answered my email.

I asked her about sending mail via wifi/internet.

She said the following:

"Hello,
We covered this a bit in an episode where we talked about the post office, but basically:  When you are in someone's town you can go and visit their post office no problem, sending letters with presents etc.  However, when you go home--even if you are friends or best friends, you CANNOT mail them over the internet (wifi, whatever).  Therefore, if you think of it like the Gamecube version it might be easy to understand/remember.  In their town: Mail OK.  In you own town:  Cant' send them mail.

Lindsey"


So that is a bit disappointing - but we can still just arrange visits to make trades.

TheChosenOne013 after you get your codes set up you can send me a FCR if you want, I'm playing CF now and wouldn't mind some no-nonsense trading.

That goes for any other CF player as well. I'm trying to get most items, bells, hybrids, etc. without the use of giveaways so trading would be great!
